Overexpression and alterations in the glycosylation of gastric mucins have been described in colorectal carcinoma. The purpose of our study was to confirm aberrant expression of MUC5AC in colorectal carcinoma, to investigate relationships between clinicopathological parameters and MUC5AC expression, and to determine if MUC5AC expression may be a prognostic factor for colorectal carcinoma. Immunohistochemical staining using an antibody against MUC5AC tandem repeat epitopes was performed on… CONTINUE READING
